Right Said Fred Promotes Anti-Vaxx Live Stream With Neo-Nazi Leader

0

Yeah. Right Said Fred shared a link with his followers over the weekend that led to a live stream full of neo-Nazis, conspiracy theories and anti-vaxx misinformation.

According to The mirror, the “I’m Too Sexy” singers, who are well-known anti-vaxxers in their native UK, posted the link on cross-platform messaging app Telegram. Although the duo did not include their own caption, the post brought their more than 5,600 subscribers to a webcast hosted by Mark Collett, leader of British white nationalist group Patriotic Alternative.

The well-known neo-Nazi, who has openly praised Hitler and denied the Holocaust in the past, was joined in his discussion by white supremacist blogger Jason Köhne (also known to his readers as No White Guilt) and David Duke, former Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.

Collett seemed to appreciate the boost from the pop group, writing, “I never thought Right Said Fred would ever share my content, but we live in interesting times!”

However, Right Said Fred seemed to realize pretty quickly that the move wasn’t very pretty. While their Telegram bio reads, “Two musicians with opinions that don’t match the mainstream media narrative,” they have since claimed through a spokesperson that posting the link was a crash and deleted it. “The boys are sharing information that they believe is not covered by the mainstream media, this is a rare example where the band got it wrong,” their rep said in a statement.

It should be noted that the brothers, Fred and Richard Fairbrass, have protested Britain’s COVID-19 lockdowns in London and regularly speak out against vaccination, despite the latter being hospitalized for four days in 2021.
